Play live Midi and get audio recorded

Hello. An old user returning after several years away. Still using Cubase 8.5 until I get a new Mac.

My questions is:
Can I play vst instruments and record the audio output of those instruments (altogether or individually) as audio? Is this possible? I do not want to bounce them out and reimport, I want it to happen as I play. I likewise do not want to freeze… Just play and have a mix on a stereo track recorded.

I want to layer several things together for some sections of a song, not as a whole… So I want to be able to just record it permanently and then load other instruments for other parts.

Yes, you can do so in Cubase Pro, where you can route an output bus to an input of Audio track.

  • Add a Group channel.
  • Route the Output of the Instrument track to this Group.
  • Add an Audio track.
  • Set the Group as an Input of the Audio track.
  • Record enable on the Instrument track and the Audio track.
  • Hit Record.
